    We enjoy going to Milner’s on Sunday evening for dinner and the jazz combo, and last night did not disappoint in any way. Great service by Blair, a wide range of wines by the glass to choose from, and great food. The meatloaf was nicely seasoned and perfectly cooked and the salmon was excellent.

    Being that it was our 1st time there everything was great except for the fact that my fish was bur t tasting and our waitress smelled like smoke, got my sons order wrong and looked at me as I was wrong. I know i wasn't wrong because what she brought out, he doesn't eat. I constantly had to ask other waitresses to refil my drink. It was like our waitress put our food on the table and then disappeared. Other than that, it was great!

    Lovely Sunday brunch menu with lots of options. Friendly and professional service staff that worked well as a team and were attentive without being bothersome. We dressed up a little and did not feel out of place as casual clothing is announced on their website. I had the Boursin Scramble with bacon and and appetizer of fried green tomatoes, which were both delicious. The pesto that comes with the tomatoes is worth hanging on to for a bread spread. Warm bread would have been a thoughtful touch-I like warm bread! We drove from Durham N.C. ( about 72 miles) to meet a cousin, and it was worth the drive to Winston-Salem.

    Right off I want to say that Ebony, our server was outstanding and did a GREAT JOB!!! The jazz band was great and that was the main reason we came. My wife enjoyed her Simple Greens salad and her Moravian cookie-pecan crusted salmon. The Chicken & Sausage Gumbo I got was great! I also got the 14oz ribeye and added fried oysters. The roasted asparagus and bacon-mushroom demi glace that came with the steak were excellent! The steak was cooked correctly but the cut of meat was not the best and was tough in spots. Not what I would expect for this $42.00 plate. The fried oysters (a $14.00 add on) were near flavorless so I had to add a lot of salt and dip them in the bacon-mushroom demi glace to get much enjoyment out of those. Next time I will stay away from the high end stuff and get a cheeseburger. We sat at a table in the raised area near the jazz music and it was about 60 degrees up there. If you sit up there, bring a sweater. After we ate, we quickly took our wine down to the much warmer bar area and enjoyed the jazz band until they closed.

    My only complaint is that the she crab soup was seasoned with an overwhelming amount of black pepper. This had not been a problem in the past. This cream/sherry based soup should not be aggressively peppered. Fried green tomatoes are always a winner here.

    Love the jazz on Sundays. Food was good but not hot. Service was poor - after 15 minutes, had to remind server about the bottle of wine that we ordered and she brought the wrong one. Waited another 10 minutes before she brought the correct bottle.

    My family went to Milner’s on Sunday night for dinner and had a great experience. The restaurant has a bistro vibe and the food was very good. The service was exceptional! Our waiter went out of his way to assure we had a great experience. We had some elderly people with us and they were cold. I asked if the fan above them could be turned down and he said I’ll just turn it off. We really appreciated his understanding. He also gave us tips on the menu which were spot on. All in all a very positive and fun experience!

    We arrived at 12:45 for our 1:00 brunch reservation and were as a couple promptly seated, in a restaurant that was virtually empty, in the restaurant’s back room where one other couple was seated. We sat for 25 minutes with no staff person coming to our table or even acknowledging us. At 1:10 I went back to the hostess stand and advised them of what was going on. A hostess apologized and told me that she would send someone to our table. At 1:20 a manager came to our table. She also apologized, advised us that our server had become ill and had to leave and that another server would be assigned to the table. Shortly thereafter our server arrived, brought us bread and water and took our order. She had a number of tables in another part of the restaurant but was generally attentive. For some reason our food order for two, which was not complicated, did not come out, via another server, until 2:00. The food was OK. Prior to moving from the Triad area we had eaten at Milner a number of times with the service, food and atmosphere all being excellent. We recently relocated back to the Triad and decided to give Milner’s a try. This visit did not our prior experiences and was disappointing.
